The whole world has changed, and so has the marketing of products and services. Since the invention of the internet, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, blogging, and the smart phone we are seeing use changes in the way companies market their products. You can now contact and stay in touch with people all over the world without leaving your home or office. All of the new tools available make life much easier.
You still need to practice the old ways of marketing; face to face for me is still the best way. I understand some of the new technology can be somewhat intimidating. There are a lot of free webinars available to help you learn how to use this new technology. Get all the training you can, especially if it’s offered free. Do not try to overload yourself. You can come up with a schedule for learning each new type of media available. That way you are taking on one thing at a time, starting slowly, so you will not be overwhelmed.
My suggestion would be to set a side one hour per day in the beginning. This way, you’re not dedicating too much time on learning new things which can be counter productive. The more you learn and become comfortable, with each new piece of technology, the more time you can spend on it. If you’re not convinced, go online and look at all the statistics, and the demographic, for each new technology.
I bet you will be amazed, and wonder why you haven’t done it before now. I hope this has been informative for you, and at least get you to look at how your marketing your business in 2011.
